    Is this a new security feature or is my computer haunted?

    If my wireless Logitech keyboard is moved out of range of the reciever, my
    computer will automatically lock and then go to sleep until I move the
    keyboard back in range... I am running a standard cheapie Logitech wireless
    combo on Vista RC2. My mobo is a Gigabyte K8U-939 with 2GB DDR and an Athlon
    64 4200+. Video card is an AGP nVidia 6800 Ultra.

    I can't seem to find any info about this "problem" anywhere and it really
    freaked me out the first few times it happened. I thought my computer could
    somehow tell I stood up from the chair and secured itself for my absence.

    Thanks for any help!

    I think I have the same wireless keyboard and mouse, let me see if I have
    the same problem when I get home. I have used the mouse from across the
    room with no problem.
